Nausea solutions?

I think I must have a new luteal phase issue--constant nausea that started this noon. I could barely eat lunch and forced down supper after some ginger pear tea (which I am currently sipping but it isn't helping much). Does anyone have any suggestions? I was never nauseous even with my two previous pregnancies so this in a regular cycle is really not funny. I'm only 10 dpo so it seems ridiculously early to have anything going on as far as a possible pregnancy. Anyhoo, any ideas? I'm kind of miserable.

Probably not very good for me but in my family we always sip gingerale when feeling nauseous. I even had it during labour when I was getting close to transition in that pukey stage. Works for me better then anything and at least gives you some sugar energy if you don't feel like eating. I think that vitamin B6 is meant to help with nausea (particularly during early pregnancy) too. Hope that helps and that you keep feeling sicker (wink wink :)Jasmine

You can get wrist bands that work by acupressure. They are used for travel sickness and pregnancy nausea.

I tried gingerbeer before and it did nothing for me. But then I read the ingredients and there wasn't any ginger in it. So if you trying gingerale or gingerbeer make sure it actually has ginger!

My midwife recommended a type of antinausea pill from the pharmacy but I decided against it. Although I had nausea I wasn't vomitting so it was bareable. Brushing my teeth was the hardest! I read that your body has nausea at the most sensitive time in pregnancy so that you don't eat anything that would be bad for the baby. I hope you feel better soon.

Nausea is supposed to be worse with girls, or multiples! Twins?

Best of luck hon!

Have you tested yet? Your chart looks good...maybe implantation dip a few days ago....you might be feeling symptoms already or your hormones are just playing tricks on you and causing you to feel nausous. If it continues and you are not pregnant you might want to go see the doctor to run some blood work and see if there is a hormonal issue.

Thanks! I'll try those ideas. I had a meeting at work and had some licorice and that was a huge mistake--nearly vomiting ill so I came home from work. I work in healthcare so it is kind of bad form to puke on your patients. ;) It was eggdrop soup for lunch and applesauce for a snack but I still felt a bit quesy. Food sounds good, but as soon as I eat, not so much.

I am hopeful that these are signs of an impending BFP... each pregnancy can be so different. I didn't have nausea with my first two and then I found myself yakin' at 15 weeks with this one!!

But if not.... big time UGH! That stinks. Over here we do the saltines and non caffinated bubble drink... hope something helps ease things soon!
